We were always taught in school that to be "disruptive" was to be out of line, a distraction to others and generally difficult to be around. In 21st-century cloud-based networking, multimedia optimization and App creation, however, it's an honor to be counted as one of the disruptive leaders in these fields. That's why Skyfire was honored and happy to be included in this week's Business Insider roundup of "The Top 20 Most Disruptive Apps of All Time" for our Skyfire Browser on iOS and Android. Our game-changing Flash-video-rendering mobile browser was, and remains, an illustrative example of our desire to disrupt established and hidebound modes of thinking, and to ensure that operators and consumers who use our technology are on the leading edge of cloud-based solutions for their optimization and browsing needs.
Business Insider certainly has the Skyfire Browser in some pretty elite app company, too – Spotify, Shazam, HBO Go. Google Earth – even Angry Birds. Our browser, which remains a top seller in both the iPad/iPhone App Store and in Google Play, illustrates just how far you can get when disruptive DNA leads you to a "blow it up" mentality. Expensive inline hardware spread throughout an operator's network, when far greater efficiencies & savings can be easily realized by optimizing video and multimedia in the cloud? Blow it up. Vanilla mobile browsing lacks social media and app extensions, and keeps consumers from interacting with their favorite content the way they do on the web? Blow it up. Flash videos don't play on the iPhone? Blow it up.
The Skyfire Browser and our consumer products have been the laboratory and learning engines for our operator solutions that are rolling out all over the world. We're proud to be recognized by Business Insider for our disruptive innovation to date, and are brashly cocky and confident that you'll continue to see Skyfire recognized for game-changing solutions and services.
